One of the fun parts in building a crawler is accessorizing it. Got a roof rack for an MB G500. It's a little wider for the JB74 roof but looks ok to me. I also put two roof lights instead of the usual 4. I also installed a metal ladder at the back. Then added a few red accents.

Made a short video. Testing out the body roll after installing the steel roof rack and added a few accessories on it. I like how the body moves now on rocky terrain on my makeshift backyard mini trail.

Installed new tires. From 98mm to 105mm. Looks great (I think).

Also installed new GRC roof lamps. Looks much better than the previous ones.

A slow-motion video to show the body and suspension movement on rocky terrain. I really like the outcome of this set up.

I must say follow your urge. Haha!

But seriously, it'll be worth it. I really enjoyed the slow build on this rig. Took me almost two years but somehow I know that it's still not complete yet. Something else is missing... 😆

Ordered these straps and they look great! It just took time adjusting and fitting until you get the right tightness and not snap the plastic locks,

So I couldn't resist this GRC side tool case accessory when I saw it, I just had to order a pair for each side and installed them. Looks good in my opinion.

New wheels and tires (again).
I ordered this set four times and three of those were cancelled. Last try (4th) and I finally got it.
 
Love the way it looks.
